How does slow equal fast? Well, apparently for fire rescue teams, slow mean smooth, and smooth means fast. Last week, the teams competed for time in donning their gear and saving colleagues from across the gym. The winterovers enjoyed some nice auroras last week before the moon rose and scared them all away. It was a relatively quiet week for the IceCube detector, but busy in the station kitchen where a special request meal was being prepared—Jaegerschnitzel with spaetzle.
